Abstract: The abrasive mixed waterjet was with success utilized to chop several materials together with steel, metal and glass for a spread of business applications. This work focuses on surface roughness of hybrid metal matrix composite (AA6061, Al2O3, B4C). Machining was applied by AWJM (Abrasive Waterjet Cutting) at completely different parameters Water pressure, Traverse speed, Abrasive flow and stand-off distance. The reinforced composite was analyzed exploitation FE SEM (Field Emission Scanning lepton Microscope) and distribution of reinforced was studied by AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy). For optimum results surface roughness was calculated.
Keywords: Surface roughness, Analysis of FESEM, Analysis of AFM, Al6061, B4C, Al2O3.
